Shabby Chic Quilt Blocks

It is time again for a NEW challenge at the Dies R Us challenge blog
and this week the theme is "Embossing Folders".
So get those folders out and join in...the only other requirement is to use
a die (after all, that is what Dies R Us is all about..right?)!!


  I went a "Shabby Chic" route this time,
which happens to be a favorite design of mine.
Nothing like pretty soft colors, lace and pink to cheer up a day!!


I started with a wonderful new embossing folder that has all these gorgeous
little embossed quilt squares on it.
 I will have a list of the dies and links to them I used below, at the post bottom.
I took several pictures so you can see some of the blocks.
(The ones I haven't covered up that is)...LOL!

The background paper that I embossed is Graphic 45 Little Darlings.
The jar is one I purchased from an Etsy sight, isn't it gorgeous?
And, here I have used those little Heart Stems once again,
I told you, you would be seeing them a lot on my blog!!  I just love these things!


I made the Roses and Rose leaves, and funny thing is, 
all 3 Roses were constructed of the same paper, but I only inked the edges of
two, using TH Distress Worn Lipstick ink.  I added Frosted Lace Stickles to each Rose.
The sentiment is from Flourishes Always Blooming set.
Goodness how I miss that stamp company, good thing I have LOTS of their stamps!

I tucked a little "crochet" die cut under the jar for a doily.

Make sure to stop over at the "Dies R Us" challenge blog.
